Booting a mission critical server to safe mode is a scary proposition!!!
I was also wondering if it is OK to use the same anti-malware apps on a server - spybot s&d, Ad-aware, HJT, etc. - as you would normally use on a desktop.
To update you on the status of this problem, for now I have a BandAid over that gaping wound - I shut off SMTP services. Tech support(paid tech-support) turned on SMTP for some reason, and that's when the problem started.
Good to know that the server has some malware on it though. I never would have know that without tech-support turning on SMTP. Unfortunately, this site is often better than paid tech-support.
Any ideas on how to run other malware scans on a mission critical server?
